Guernsey’s largest private screening of the award winning documentary, Man Down, by local producer/director, Gaz Papworth, took place at Beau Sejour cinema on Friday 8 November.
With its majority male workforce, Rihoy & Son felt the recently released local documentary would be beneficial to their staff, helping to highlight the area of male mental health, and helping diminish the associated stigma. They decided to hold a private screening, during working hours - all staff attending were paid for their normal day’s work.
The documentary shows local men sharing their own mental health stories.
Rihoy & Son arranged for more than 200 staff, subcontractors, architects, surveyors, and engineers to watch the documentary at the private screening, currently the biggest to date, which concluded with a few words from Gaz Papworth, who explained how well his documentary has been received in the island, as well as some recent award success, picking up Best Documentary at the 2019 I AM film festival.
Donations raised during the screening will be split between the documentary’s chosen local charity, “The Man Club” and Rihoy & Son’s chosen charity for 2019, MUG.
